FileMaker Licensing and Hosting
FileMaker offers many different license options. Choosing the best option requires a thorough understanding of the various licensing programs as well as asking the right questions about your business and technical requirements. At Skeleton Key, we are experts in all phases of the process.
For our clients who are new to FileMaker, our project proposals include pricing for FileMaker licensing as well as plugins or other software that your solution will require. During the project, we’ll work with you to purchase the right licenses, at the right time, to ensure a smooth deployment. Things like company size, usage patterns, and mobile and web features all come into play when making licensing decisions. We are here to help you find the best fit as well as the most cost-efficient option.
For new clients with older solutions or out-of-date FileMaker licenses, we want to make sure your FileMaker solution continues to be an effective tool for your business. Older software can cause issues with performance, compatibility, and security and you may be missing out on great new features that have been added to newer versions of the FileMaker platform. Skeleton Key has successfully converted many older solutions to help clients achieve peak performance. We are experts in providing you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a stable solution which will continue to support your organization without interruption.
Each year, Skeleton Key helps to ensure that our clients’ FileMaker licenses stay current. We not only complete the renewal process for you, but also evaluate your licensing on an annual basis to ensure the best fit for your needs. As your organization evolves and grows, Skeleton Key will make sure your license package is as effective and cost efficient as possible.
Skeleton Key also provides managed hosting services using FileMaker Cloud or FileMaker Server. Many of our clients enjoy the benefits of not maintaining their own server. We’ll help you find the best option to host your solution that provides the optimum balance between performance, availability, security, and cost.
